Still Corners launch new Single The Dream, in anticipation of their new album Dream Talk on 5th April 2024.

“Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.” This quote from Shakespeare is the central theme for Still Corners new sonic masterpiece “The Dream”, the latest single from their upcoming 6th Album “Dream Talk”. Shakers and a lone rhythm guitar drop into a fast paced beat of bass and drums, gradually revealing the melodic voice of Tessa Murray on a train travelling at speed through a desert at night – “We are on a night train, heading to the east end”. Shifting synths combine with a climatic build of congas gradually revealing a beautiful and epic tale of a “dream within a dream”. The song finishes off with a crystalline guitar solo from her partner in crime Greg Hughes. This is Still Corners at their most seductive and romantic.

The video is based on the duo’s deep love of mystery novels and cosy crime fiction. Tessa Murray plays a new character called “Penelope Braithwaite” as she investigates the “Mystery of the Repeating Dream”. Folks from the fictitious town of “Reverwood, Sussex” have been falling into a repeating dream trap, when they wake up they realise they are in fact in the same dream. Penelope arrives at a mysterious house to investigate. Does she solve the mystery or is she too stuck in a looping dream? Beautifully filmed in England by the band themselves and featuring steam trains and a dilapidated mansion set on vast gardens, this is a detective story not to be missed!

Recorded across three studios in the south of France, East Sussex, and Woodstock, New York, the new album Dream Talk is elegant and wistful with a sound that is focused, stylish and seductive. Shaped by fantasies, dreams and automatic writing, Dream Talk almost fell together in a dream-like state. Murray explains: “I had tapped into something new and the way it came out was quite hypnotic, like a transitional state between wakefulness and sleep,” adding the album name essentially wrote itself.
